2021 APEGA Annual Report

WHAT SUCCESS LOOKS LIKE We recognize and address emerging issues affecting

our professions and our ability to self-regulate.

Regulatory Trends

We undertook several initiatives in 2021 to address emerging regulatory trends and issues. To remain a strong and progressive regulator, we must anticipate change—and be open and responsive to it.

Together, we have a mutual and shared responsibility to safeguard public welfare. We: signed a new memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Alberta Safety Codes Council (SCC) to close a gap in the safety codes system. The MOU outlined expectations and responsibilities for APEGA professionals sitting on SCC tribunals to ensure a fair appeals process by alleviating conflicts of interest while protecting public safety


Our governing legislation—the Engineering and Geoscience Professions Act —overlaps or interacts with the legislation of several other Alberta regulators. We worked closely with those regulators in 2021 to increase public safety through improved cooperation, communication, and information sharing, including clarifying boundaries between our legislations to ensure they work in harmony.

continued to work closely with Alberta Occupational Health and Safety based on the MOU, highlighting a commitment to increase communication and cooperation on investigations involving unskilled practice or unprofessional conduct by APEGA registrants
